Udupi: Vehicular overpasses at Ambalpady, Santhekatte approved


Daijiworld Media Network – Udupi (JD)

Udupi, Oct 21: “Vehicular overpasses have been sanctioned by the central government at Ambalpady and Santhekatte of NH 66. The central government has sanctioned Rs 50 crore for the construction of two vehicular overpasses,” said Shobha Karandlaje, minister of state for Agriculture and Farmers’ welfare.

In an official press release minister and Udupi-Chikkamagaluru MP Shobha Karandlaje said, "On the request of the people of the constituency, central minister for road transport has sanctioned a sum of Rs 50 crore for construction of two vehicular overpasses. Ambalpady and Santhekatte have four roads connecting junctions and are identified as black spot zones. For the ease of vehicular and pedestrian movement, the central government has approved construction of vehicular overpass in these areas. Tender process has been completed and the work will begin soon. I thank Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Road Transport minister Nitin Gadkari for making this happen.”

Ambalpady and Santhekatte were the major spots on NH 66 where vehicle as well as pedestrians movement was an issue. Traffic snarls during peak hours of the day at these junctions were a common sight.

    Pleased with the good news. But keep your fingers crossed. Without removing the illegal buildings on that junction , constructions not possible. All those buildings already in NH property still they can’t remove , court cases are pending . So sanctioned money must not disappear . Hoping for the best.

    We welcome this move because it is becoming very tough to cross the Ambalapady junction these days due to heavy traffic from all directions and congestion at Santhakatte crossing is reaching a peak like congestion at the entry and exit point of Abu Dhabi / Mussafah road.

    This underpass could have been done during the highway upgradation itself ,if concerned authorities had little common sense and small brain. Now again disrupt the traffic for several years in the name if said work. Bullshit representatives.

Now let us think how she or other ministers even Modi can do the development. Everything need to be requested by people. The only thing they do not need people idea is to loot and increase taxes.
